While Kate Middleton’s history of sometimes repeating outfits has earned her a reputation for being slightly thrifty, news of her latest penny-pinching look has the web buzzing. It has been revealed that the Duchess of Cambridge donned a pair of $75 Cubic Zirconia earrings at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee festivities on Tuesday. The petite drop “diamonds” by Belinda Hadden sold out within minutes–which goes to show that the Middleton effect can impact both her high end purchases as well as her more affordable picks. To complete her look, Middleton donned a custom lace number in peach by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen–a pricey frock that we hope she repeats down the road.
